9. Energy Bars

These are foods in disguise, if you think that this is the answer to your diet plan, you are totally wrong. The content of energy bars do not fill you up but actually gets you to become hungry after a few minutes of munching on one. You can opt for a whole grain bar instead with no added sugar or flour.

8. Bagels

This is another food choice mistake since it is made of flour and sugar again. If you are really craving for bagels, then you can just make a few mini bagels in your home using whole grain flour.
